The reason I want modules is I need to learn them and I had major problems when
I put the TV card in, it took the interrupt from the sound card and I had
serious getting sound working again. I hear that if I had used modules in the
first place it would have been less painful.
This reminds me. I've still got the get that TV card sorted out as well. The
modules seem to be loaded, but when I try to use xawtv, the kernel gets
messages about no tuner loaded? Anyway, I should work on one problem at a time.
